Chip Shot Challenge is a 4-player minigame found in Mario Party 3 and Mario Party: The Top 100.

Introduction[edit]

Lakitu appears and places the flag in the hole to be shot at in the game. The camera pans back to show one of the players about to make a shot, and the minigame begins.

In Mario Party: The Top 100, the flag falls into the hole from the sky. After the camera pans to all the players, one is randomly chosen to go first.

Gameplay[edit]

The players have to make a shot as accurately as possible within the time limit.

If a player gets a hole in one, that player automatically wins. If this happens, Lakitu holds a sign saying "NICE!". Other players can make a hole in one and win too. If no players make a hole in one, the player whose ball is closest to the hole wins. If two or more players tie with the condition of no players making a hole in one, all of those players will still win.

If the ball falls off the island, the player that made the shot immediately loses as Lakitu appears holding a sign saying "MISS".

In Battle Royale mode in Mario Party 3, the players take turns according to the turn order during the board. In Mini-Game mode, the players take turns according to player order.
